    • Books

Julia and Victoria are joined by creative writing grad student Waringa Hunja this week to cover Jhumpa Lahiri’s short story collection Interpreter of Maladies that covers a wide variety of unique perspectives from the Indian diaspora. Turns out, after winning a Pulitzer for this book, Lahiri taught herself Italian and starting publishing books in her third language just for fun, so J & V are particularly excited to have a writer as a guest so they can all drool over Lahiri’s incredible talent and general awesomeness together.
